Profilia Village

Municipality of South Rhodes
Population: 326
84km from Rhodes town

Profilia is one of the authentic gems of the island, located in the south, central part of Rhodes. It is a picturesque traditional village which keeps its culture alive amongst the green lush background of one of the largest forested areas on Rhodes. The small white washed village homes nestle at the foot of the Gerakas Mountain, and the narrow winding streets in and out of the village offer the visitor a mysterious tour of the surrounds-it is anyones guess what will be round the next corner. Village life centers round the local tavern which is open to all and offers everything from a simple Greek coffee, to the most tastiest of home-cooked dishes, their specialty being chicken in red wine sauce.

Views from this vantage point are second to none and should you be visiting in the evening, be sure to look for the white cloud that covers the village like a blanket. The superb mountainous scenes surrounding Profilia invite you to hike, and the trekking paths offer one the chance to spot the famously shy Rhodian deer, the Dama-Dama, and of course many other species of fauna and flora. The unspoiled environment of Profilia is protected by the European Network NATURA 2000 and gives one the chance to re-charge their batteries. There are three monasteries in the around the village, the Byzantine tabernacle of Saint George next to the tavern is particularly interesting and you can see well preserved frescoes dating back to the 16th Century.
